PRINCIPLE Study

Our practice is supporting vital COVID-19 research. As part of this, we are helping to carry out a UK Government priority research study called PRINCIPLE.

The PRINCIPLE trial aims to find treatments that reduce hospital admission and improve symptoms for people with COVID-19. You could be eligible to join if

  • You have had these symptoms for fewer than 15 days:
    • a continuous new or worsening cough
    • and/or a high temperature
    • OR have a positive test for SARS-Co-V2 infection with COVID-19 symptoms in the past 14 days
  • You are aged 50 to 64 with a pre-existing illness
  • You are aged 65 and above
  • Find out more

There are a growing number of research studies aiming to find treatments for patients with COVID-19. If you’d like to find out more about COVID-19 research and how you can contribute, please visit the Be Part of Research website at www.bepartofresearch.uk.

ATTACK – A spirin T o T arget A rterial Events in C hronic K idney Disease

Why is the this study important?

It is estimated that there are at least 5million people with chronic kidney disease in the UK that are at increased risk of cardiovascular disease – this trial should give the evidence required to prove one way or the other whether aspirin should be offered to our patients with chronic kidney disease to prevent heart disease or a stroke.

CLIMB – University of Cambridge NHS/HSC Health Data Consent Survey

Why is this study important?

This study is an online anonymous survey of public opinion on the ways in which national health service data should be shared between health providers or restricted: The primary objective of this study is to establish public views on the sharing of identified health data (for clinical purposes) and de-identified health data (for research) across the UK by means of a national survey.

The live survey can be found at: www.redcap-ide-cam.org.uk

How do you think health data should be shared and used?

Health data is information collected in the course of health care provided by the NHS or HSC. It is used to provide care, and sometimes also for research to improve care for others. However, there are ways of controlling how health data is used.Researchers based at the University of Cambridge would like to know your view.

The study is open to anyone over 16 years of age (or under 16 with parental permission). Participants must reside in the UK. Average time taken to complete the online survey is approximately 15 minutes.
